In the wake of the Chernobyl disaster the Soviet Union begins to collapse changing forever the lives of a nine-year old child prodigy, his aunt, a leading surgeon, and a teenage boy in a rural village. Russia, 1986. In a run-down apartment block in Moscow, a nine-year-old piano prodigy practices silently for fear of disturbing the neighbours.

interesting perspective on a major news event that was largely downplayed in US news reports. book somewhat disjointed with an unexpected, yet satisfying ending - wish the author would have explored or expounded more on this.... ( )
  ChetBowers | Mar 10, 2021 |
Something about the writing in this book is utterly compelling. It captures a lot of the alienation and isolation many in the old USSR felt as the modern world began to permeate the day to day life of the citizens. Using the accident at Chernobyl, the author tragically yet beautifully at times works to highlight the utter dysfunction at that point in the federation. I completed the book several months ago and it still lingers. ( )

"All that had come before erased in a single day"
By sally tarbox on 17 August 2016
Format: Kindle Edition
This was a fantastic read; a fictional look at the 1986 Chernobyl tragedy. Through the lives of various protagonists, we see the rural life of a family in Belarus wrecked forever when the nearby nuclear power station crashes. The unpreparedness of the authorities for such a disaster is horrific; when the women and kids are finally evacuated, the menfolk are kept back to help deal with the situation, all information on the dangers withheld...
Meanwhile a lonely Moscow surgeon is conscripted to help with the situation. His personal life and that of his estranged wife all tie in to the story, as does the political situation in Russia. Glasnost and perestroika are the new watch-words, but the people still live in terror of the secret police and suffer privations. But things are starting to change...
Beautifully crafted novel, horrific in the truths it reveals but a great achievement.. ( )

All that is solid melts into air, all that is holy is profaned, and man is at last compelled to face with sober senses his real conditions of life and his relations with his kind.
—KARL MARX, The Communist Manifesto
To my mind radioactivity is a real disease of matter. Moreover it is a contagious disease. It spreads. You bring those debased and crumbling atoms near others and those too presently catch the trick of swinging themselves out of coherent existence. It is in matter exactly what the decay of our old culture is in society, a loss of traditions and distinctions and assured reactions.
—H G WELLS, Tono-Bungay

He comes to her daily, slipping into her mind between breaths. She draws him in as she draws in air, peddling along the Quai de Valmy, as she draws in her new surroundings; the glow of a Paris summer, the jigsaw of shadows thrown across her forearms when she sweeps beneath a canopy of poplars.
